We offer only technical support using the free and open source software for Windows, Linux and Mac OS X platforms. Full technical support can answer all of your questions regarding board bring-up, new peripheral interfacing and many more. Standard technical support only helps you to get started on your system using the given examples.

Flavor recommendation based-on user level: Beginners who want to shorten the learning curve should choose Full Support Kit with months of technical support of your choice.
